The Corvette hobby is one of the best in all of the automotive kingdom, with enthusiastic owners, great events, and, obviously, fantastic cars. This 1987 Corvette is a fast, fun entry-level 'Vette with a known ownership history, zero modifications, and an awesome color combination. Only 1051 yellow Corvettes were built 1987, making this one a relatively rare beast. It's rather rare to find an unmodified Corvette of this vintage, but this one has led a very easy life as a fair-weather toy. The bodywork remains in great shape, and while Corvettes of this period are known for being hardcore, this one has aged very gracefully with no cracks or obvious signs of hard use, and the shiny paint suggests that someone spent a lot of Saturday afternoons lovingly washing and waxing its sleek yellow surface. The yellow itself is ideal, vivid and bright but not pastel, and if you think a yellow Corvette can't be a hardcase, guess again, because this one rocks. The black rub strip that surrounds the body adds contrast and shows no UV damage, and the tinted windows combine with a smoked acrylic top to give it a no-nonsense look that really works. For a car that's almost three decades old, this one looks a fraction of its age. The C4 had a state-of-the-art interior in 1987 and it has aged well, both in terms of design and in this car's case, preservation as well. The leather seats are called "Graphite" and it works extremely well with the yellow body. Showing minimal wear, the interior is comfortable and inviting, but definitely performance-oriented with a driver-centric instrument panel full of digital gauges. Carpets and door panels show similar excellent preservation, as does the cargo area out back. Turn the key and the dash comes to life, and you have all the options at your fingertips: A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo that still sounds great. Custom "CORVETTE" door sills welcome you to into the car, with a half-dozen Corvette stylized corssed-flag emblems inside, there's no mistaking what kind of car this is. Torquey and as reliable as a mule, the 350 cubic inch L98 under the hood provided Corvette power for years and remains one of GM's better efforts. It's also insanely easy to modify, with a vast aftermarket designed around it. But a modified engine is also one that's been used hard, but you're in luck because this one remains bone stock. From the distinctive intake manifold to the finned aluminum valve covers, it remains clean and well-maintained, and thanks to GM electronics, it still starts instantly and idles like it should every single time. The 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission snaps off downshifts with only a light prod, yet cruises effortlessly at highway speeds and actually pulls down decent fuel mileage. The exhaust system is new and sounds awesome, the suspension still delivers impressive grip, and the brakes are powerful. Even the original 16-inch alloys are in excellent shape and wear fat 255/50/16 Goodyears. It's hard to go wrong with a Corvette of any kind, but this one that includes a ton of documentation, factory books, and window sticker is a smart choice. Call today!
